Folklores are narrative songs, sung to elaborate the noble deeds of legendary heroes that mostly raise them to the position of local deities or they are commemorated as the eternal and immortal beings. Sometimes a certain purpose resonates in folklores on festive occasions in local traditions and customs. Even during rites and rituals folklores play significantly important role to correspond the sense of social interaction and consciousness which is carried forward from one generation to another, so the thoughts of folk are elicited in varied forms in the Indian culture. The study will reflect on the semiotic properties that present discourse analysis on the idea to protect the nation’s sovereignty or region’s integrity. The study will focus on the relevance that how warriors’ brave deeds in history till date have been a source of inspiration for young Indians. It will examine the hardcore level of inherent instinctual loyalty of Freedom-Fighters towards their motherland, which is significant to protect nation’s totality and integrity with one’s martyrdom spirit. The aim is to interpret that patriotic drive which has been currently found missing in the present countrymen of India.
